Are Yuh' Ready to Win Yuh' Real 10 Year-Challenge?


Did Yuh' Know Dat'?

THERE ARE TWO KINDS OF TOURISTS

It may help Yuh' Better Understand what Backpacking is all about by 1st explaining some  of the differences between Backpackers & the Traditional Tourist Yuh' are more familiar with.

Here are a few stereotypes to get Yuh' started with generalizing the Two Different Types of Tourists, the Specific Needs of Backpackers & the Opportunities Presented in an inclusive Tourism Economy.


BACKPACKERS ARE NOT YUH' TRADITIONAL "HIGHTY-TIGHTY" TOURIST

JAMAICANS HAVE TO WELCOME & HOST BACKPACKERS LIKE OUR OWN FAMILY VISITING FROM "FOREIGN" & THAT YUH' JUST MEETING FOR THE First TIME...

Which All-Inclusive Resort Are Yuh' Going to Offer this Type of Tourist?
NO WONDER THEY HAVE BEEN VISITING OTHER DESTINATIONS INSTEAD...

NOW DO YUH' UNDERSTAND WHY BACKPACKERS & CULTURAL IMMERSION TRAVELERS HAVE NEVER VISITED JAMAICA MUCH IN THE PAST?

Once Backpackers Know They Are Safe with Friendly Locals
Ready to Show Them Around the Real Country as It is Lived -

EVERY JAMAICAN CAN START A SMALL BUSINESS
SHOWCASING WHAT WE EACH LOVE THE MOST
ABOUT OUR WORLD-FAMOUS CULTURE!!

HELP JAMAICA SEIZE THIS INCLUSIVE OPPORTUNITY - CUSTOM-BUILT FOR OUR CULTURE IN OUR TIME OF NEED

Can Yuh' Speak Pat'wa (Patois) fluently?

Congratulations - Yuh' Just Qualified as a Tourist Language Instructor!!!

Do you Record Music at the Studio, Raise Farm Animals or even occasionally go "Bird Bush"?

Organize Yuh'self Well and Backpackers & Cultural Immersion Travelers WILL PAY YUH' to Come Along for the Experience.

Do Yuh' go to Ladies Night with Yuh' Sistren Dem' Every Thursday?

Create a Community Tourism Tour for Single Female Travelers to Join Yuh' Group for some Authentic Party Vibes, Gossip & People Watching!

Will Yuh' Get Rich Overnight?

Probably Not. But at Least Every Now & Again Yuh' Go Session or Record some Tune' at the Studio for "Free"...

Don't Forget Tourists Need to Sleep too.

Maybe Yuh' Offer a Package Deal where Yuh' Take Care of Everything necessary to Experience a Specific Element of Local Culture - possibly including insured Transportation & Honestly Described Accommodation - for a few Days or even All of their Jamaican Vacation.

Yuh' Don't Have Nuh' Tourism Experience???

Treat Backpacker Tourists with the Hospitality Yuh' Give Yuh' Own Visiting Family from New York, London, Toronto or Miami & Not Much Can Go  Too Wrong...

Most of the Time ;)

Are Yuh' a Good Cook or Dancer?

Thousands of Foreign Women are Married to Jamaican Men Overseas & are Tired of Hearing How Dem' Can't Cook or Wine' & Would Gladly Pay Yuh' to Learn Jamaican Cultural Basics.

Same applies for 2nd Generation Jamaicans born overseas. The Community Tourism "Cultural Coaching" Possibilities are Endless!

As Simple & Routine as it Seems to Yuh', a Cultural Tourist will Pay for an Authentic Cultural Experience if it is Safe, Well-Organized, Convenient, Punctual & Delivers Full Value for Whatever Price Yuh' are Charging.

Nothing Positive about  Jamaican Culture is Off-Limits!

After figuring out Transportation, How Hard would it be for Yuh' to Advertise & Host Personalized Sunday Tours for Two?

Early Morning Church Service, Afternoon Brunch, Refreshments & Conversation with a Typical Jamaican Family, an optional Cooking Class Teaching Preparations of a Full Jamaican Meal, a Group/Family Dinner with Drinks/Dessert - PLUS a Guided Walk Around the Local Neighborhood?

We Won't Tell Them Yuh' Were Going to Do All of that Stuff Anyway...

Same Thing Applies for Saturday Chores or Market Day.

Nowadays Children Overseas Think Food Comes from the Supermarket. Don't Be Surprised if Tourists Pay to Watch & Help (mostly watch...) Yuh' Plant a Yam Hill or Shell Gungo Peas as small part of a Well-Organized Community Tourism Tour!

Remember Not to Waste Anyone's Time - Yours, Tourist's or Mine...

Tourists, by definition, are here for a Limited Time. They May only be in your Area for a Part of the Day or even have another Event or Transportation scheduled right after your Authentic Community Tourism Tour.

We Cannot Stress this Enough - DO NOT D**K AROUND WITH PUNCTUALITY!

This is NOT the Place for "Island Time" & "Soon Come"...

Text, Call, Email or Msg any Holdups, Delays or Change of Plans in a Timely Manner - Unless Yuh' Ten Finger Dem' Are Actually Broken - No Other Excuse is Acceptable here!

Fail to Deliver What, When & Where Yuh' Promised and Tourists Will Probably Drop Yuh' Almost as Fast as Rasta Routes Definitely Will...

This Entrepreneurial Opportunity & Jamaica's soon-to-be-established Community Tourism Reputation are Not a "2 or 3 Chance T'ing" so Consider Yuh'self Well Advised if Yuh' Plan to Partner with - or even Hire Us!

Real Talk. Bless...
